Startups have been very instrumental in getting the digital currency sector so far, making them part of the mainstream industry domains. Now, these very startups are partnering with well-known businesses, few of which have been around even longer than the average age of the startup community itself. The world is currently riding on the startup wave, but it doesnât mean that the startups are getting things easily. These early stage companies, some of them started by first-time entrepreneurs, and those potential entrepreneurs with the next world-changing idea based on Bitcoin and blockchain technology need the right kind of support and mentorship by like-minded, experienced professionals who know the ins and outs of the startupsâ target industries.
Bitcoin and its underlying technology has been around for a bit more than 7 years. However, the digital currency did not become popular until late 2012. Once people started getting to know about Bitcoin, within monthsâ businesses built around this technology started cropping up. These prolific businesses were not part of big tech conglomerates or banking and financial giants, but startups.
